":: .: : As part of this year's HOME- TOWN PRIDE DAYS, along with a great variety of activities and events which have helped make the event successful, one of the new events was an expanded KID ZONE, sponsored in part by Mid- continent Communications and several other local businesses. Bob Rose chaired this event, which was well received! Along enjoying the many kids games and activi- ties, people were also asked to make a contribution to the local Food Shelf. At a recent wrap-up meeting, the HTP committee pre- sented a donation of $850 to the Food Shelf which will be used for local needs and to help secure a new "home" for the Food Shelf. The 2013 Hometown Pride Days Committee would like to say "THANK YOU" to all those who helped make the 2013 Festival a success! To all the businesses and organizations who contributed fi- nancially to expenses or by spon- soring an event, we say a heartfelt "THANK YOU" -- as the planning committee, we can't run the festi- val without your support.
